June 2018 Makeup, Body, Hair Empties


Now, part two of my many empties! Continue reading to see what makeup, body, and hair products I've used up.

As I've mentioned previously, since I am moving towards a cruelty-free lifestyle, I will not be including any of the usual product information that I usually include (links, price, size) for non-cruelty-free products.



Urban Decay Naked 24/7 Double-Ended Eye Pencil in Whiskey/Zero(2 x 0.01 oz, $18): Unfortunately, this shade is no longer available on Sephora or the Urban Decay website. Although I didn't use up either side of this wonderful eye pencil, I got a lot of good use out of it. I just decided to toss it because it had been way too long that I had owned it so it was definitely past its expiration date. I really like the Urban Decay eyeliner formulations so I may revisit them in the future.

Lancôme Cils Booster XL Mascara Base: This has been a longtime favorite, but as Lancôme is not a cruelty-free brand, I will have to find a good dupe.

YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

Fiberwig Mascara

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 in Rose: Another favorite. I was so sad to find out that Fresh does test on animals when required by law :(

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil Easy Shape & Fill

YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer


Hair, Body, Etc

Crabtree & Evelyn Bath & Shower Gel

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray (full size 8.5 oz, $46): Oribe products smell amazing, and this one was no different. This travel size was pretty small, so I don't think it was enough for me to form an opinion on the product itself. I have another travel size of this product, so I may give an update after I use up that one.

Sensodyne Toothpaste

Bumble and bumble's Hairdresser's Invisible Oil: This was one of the rare expensive shampoos that I had been willing to splurge on. Sadly, bumble and bumble is not cruelty free :(

Bumble and bumble Don't Blow It Fine (H)air Styler

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil: The fragrance on this was way too strong for my tastes.

SKINFOOD Intensive Shea Butter Cream In-Shower: I've written a dedicated review on this. I'm having a difficult time determining for certain whether SKINFOOD is cruelty-free, but it seems like it's sold in China, so I will no longer be purchasing products from them to err on the side of caution.

Trader Joe's Coffee Body Scrub (8 oz, $4.99): This wasn't a bad scrub by any means, but the coffee grounds made way too much of a mess for me to enjoy using this.

L'Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Transforming Oil-in-Cream

L'Oréal Paris Color Vibrancy Nourishing Conditioner
